We both undertake a wide variety of organisational work in a range of settings and locations: coaching, facilitating, training and consulting. Clients’ range from small start-ups to large, global corporations and nature of business is enormously diverse.
One thing we both observe is that uncertainty and frequent change are the hallmark of our times. More than ever in organisations and society, we are faced with increasingly complex change situations that cry out for new, radical, approaches. The traditional set methodologies of change no longer adequately address this type of complexity and the organisational practitioners we meet, be it coaches, managers, leaders or OD specialists, are increasingly looking for innovative and emergent approaches.
At Relational Change, our brand of radically relational organisational Gestalt focuses therefore on developing a dynamic, dialogic and emergent approach. This means we view individuals and organisations as embedded in their context, dependent on, and emerging from within a fluid web of relationships and interactions. We view change as a constant aspect of this process and Gestalt as offering a transformative, integral and bespoke methodology for working with this ongoing complexity.
Our approach is orientated around three frameworks, examining first the impact of Context, Culture and Situation, second, the impact of others and our relationships, and third, the potential for individuals to use themselves as instruments to support exploration and change. When taken together, these frameworks support practitioners to attend to their presence, seek out the most pressing issues and mobilise for sustainable outcomes.
Relational Organisational Gestalt (ROG), thus offers a radical approach to leading-edge theory and application of Gestalt in organisational settings. It explores key skills and methods of a relational Gestalt organisational practitioner, such as inquiry into here-and-now embodied personal experience, identification and engagement in dialogue with others, and finally, embedding and sustaining change in a diverse range of situations.
